We’ve heard from Monmouth. Now, here comes The Clinton News Network (done August 18-23 among 1009 adults; 912 registered voters, 3.5% MOE):
- President: Hillary Clinton outpolls Donald Trump 44-43 percent with Libertarian Gary Johnson pulling 11 percent. (He WON’T finish that high.) This race is ANYBODY’s game in North Carolina right now.
- US Senate: Richard Burr leads 49-46 over Deborah Ross among registered voters — barely within the margin of error. The poll finds Burr’s lead expands to 5 percent over Ross when you consider respondents most likely to turn out in November.
- Governor: Here goes the heartburn, again. CNN has Cooper up SIX points over McCrory.
